Offshore processing statistics

Refugee status determination

Even with the unfair refugee status determination process on Manus Island, the percentage of decisions (initial and final) recognising these people as refugees was 71%, at 31 October 2017. These statistics are no longer being reported by the Department. Of those still on PNG as of 28 August 2019, 75% (271) were recognised refugees. Of those still in Nauru as of 28 August 2019, 75% were recognised refugees and a further 49 had not had their status determined.

The making of decisions took a long time to start, and increased very quickly in the first quarter of 2016. Since June 2017, there have been no new decisions.
